Is it just wishful thinking or will the tvnz popup channel be available on the Tivo guide anytime soon?

TiVo TVNZ Popup

We've got 2 TiVos in the house and both show these 3 random channels sitting there. They've been there for months and never have anything on them. 
We're in Auckland, if that makes any difference. Is the station broadcasting something all the time, or only for special events?

Was watching some NFL last night on TVNZ popup. So definitely broadcasting. Unsure though if its constantly on, so could be just special events. 

Interesting though the freeview guide does not show very much. But it does show the NFL, and would be handy if it was available in the Tivo guide too so that I can record.

From my experience redundant channels are spring cleaned out once and a while though not very often.  Guess in the scheme of things it's not high on the priority.

The guide content will most likely be at the ransom of the broadcaster (TVNZ) supplying the feed.
